    I had another picture thread but from last season. I wanted to create a pic thread I could keep as a on going yearbook more or less to follow starting to current. I have seen a few others and it's cool to see the business growth and progression.

    We have been plowing snow for 8 years or so small time to start then became a sub for one of the bigger companies in the Minneapolis area then for one other guys for a year and now on our own going into our 3rd season.

    I will start with the oldest pics I can find and move towards the present.

    I know there is a few non plow pics but I like to see more of peoples business and some of outside work to see who people are a bit more, so I added some of those.

    Alldayrj- We do lawn landscape irrigation and snow. We use the toolcat in the summer also. It's main purpose is winter but we use it for mulch or moving heavy things around yards in the summer. It's good for moving pavers around or trees and such without damaging grass.

    Morrissey- Thanks we like clean and nice things I guess you could say.

    Durafish- We no longer have the 3500. We seem to turn over alot of equipment. Buy stuff at the right price use it for awhile then turn around and sell for same or more than we have into it.
    Current equip list is- 2005 f150. 2005 f550 with hooklift, 2008 f550, 2010 f350, 2010 bobcat s205. 2006? cat 257, 2012 toolcat, 2005? freightliner fl80, 2002 izuzu box truck. thats most I believe. Just got rid of 2010 f250 for the 08 550.
    Also in the pictures you can see another 550 with a black box. We couldn't find a truck we were looking for so bought that 06 cab and chassis drove it straight to stonebrooke equipment and they put on a brand new rugby dump box and hoist. We then painted it and put on fenders, LED lights and such. The day we finished it the 08550 came for sale at a dealer we know the manager. Called and said we wanted it then traded the 2010 f250 for that. So now we have the extra 550 we are selling as soon as the title arrives.

    Dan85- thanks, the bad thing about the drive is I got the driveway done and half of the sidewalk and ran out of one size of pavers. No one had them in stock and Then we got busy with final things before winter so I have an unfinished walkway now till spring. at least its at my house.
